Marine Barracks Washington
8th & I
Washington, D.C.

Ladies and Gentlemen,

Our online reservation system will be available on or about 1 April to receive requests for reservations. We encourage you to visit our website for any parade season information updates.

Evening parades will be conducted every Friday at 8:45 p.m. beginning 3 May and continuing through the 30 August. Seating for the evening parade generally requires a reservation and can be requested online by accessing this website. We also have a general admissions line at each Friday evening parade that we use to fill any unclaimed seats. Seats are released at 8:00 pm each Friday evening and are filled on a first come, first served basis.

The Sunset Parades will be conducted every Tuesday at 7:00 p.m. beginning 11 June, and will continue through August 13. Parades in August begin at 6:30 p.m. Sunset Parades at the Lincoln Memorial are "open seating" and reservations are not required.

We are TBD for the location of the Sunset Parades - they will be either at the Marine Corps War Memorial or at the Lincoln Memorial for 2019.

For any questions or concerns not addressed on our website, feel free to email the Protocol Office at

Thank you again for your interest and continued support.
